The nut is left threaded.  Even knowing that with the last one I took a part I had the same problem.  You might be able to get it loose by pouring a little bit of solvent in there.

Yeah, I have the nut in pieces now, i don't think the threads are doing anything at this point, it's just pieces stuck to the base. It seems like its been welded to be part of the tub.

Seems to me like GE should have thought to install some anti seize compound on that nut

I ended up scrapping the one I had.  I took a few parts off and sold them though.
